Schönbuch Designer Emmanuelle Moureaux

Emmanuelle Moureaux

Forming space with colour is how Emmanuelle Moureaux describes the creative core of her work. She studied architecture at Bordeaux University before she moved to Tokyo in 1996. The company she opened there in 2003 has been known as “emmanuelle moureaux architecture + design” since 2009. The culture and architecture of the country in which she lives and works are her major sources of inspiration. Emmanuelle Moureaux gained international recognition for her colourful “shikiri” concept. This invented name, translated literally, means “to divide space using colours”. She has undertaken projects in frontage design, interior furnishing and exhibition stand design. Since 2008 she has also taught product design at the Tohoku University of Art & Design. For Schönbuch, Emmanuelle Moureaux has created the LINE Limited Edition, which is her interpretation of the LINE wall-mounted wardrobe, a modern classic from Apartment 8 and a multicolour highlight in the set of 5 items.
